Collaborating in Lessons

7cf were being competitive and collaborative in their RE lesson – working in pairs to research key facts about the world’s major religions. The worked so well together trying out different research strategies; near the end of the timed task the students pulled out all the stops and two groups managed to complete the whole grid of facts.

Assembly this Week

Mrs Ballam and her GCSE Food and Nutrition Group prepared an assembly on the issue of food and the impact of famine across the world. The facts were shocking and encouraged our students to think about how they could make a difference.
